I think you must run when land with chute. But I think this is for the newer ones.

Well didn't the Me-262 have the first ejection seat?

Actually it was the Heinkel He 219 Uhu that was the first fighter to be fitted with ejection seats.

Tuck and roll. Keep your legs limp, not locked, colapse when you hit the ground and roll to the left. In the US Airborne at least. I'm not sure what other nation's airborne troops did.

Just if you screw up your flare,and in that case a buttslide is safer than running. At least on fairly even and not too abrasive ground.:) A good old PLF (Parachute Landing Fall) will never go out of date,though.

I see it now. Some new guy from vinilla BF2 decides to pull his chut out. To make a long storie short, he made a nice hole in the ground.
